The difference between these categories of employment has gotten a little confusing. Basically, the sum of all placements, obtained employments, and entered employments as the result of the provision of a reportable service are all clumped together and generically called “ENTERED EMPLOYMENTS,” for reporting purposes. The distinction between the first two and the third category has to do with the type of service provided to the customer, and the length of time between the provision of the service and the date of employment. The services for both an obtained employment and a reportable service employment are input primarily via the activity service plan screen. The definition of a reportable service/entered employment follows:
REPORTABLE SERVICE/Entered Employment shall be a measure of an employment outcome of an applicant registered within 12 months following the provision of a reportable service.
Reportable Services include:
- Referral to a job
- Job placement
- Placement in training
- Obtaining employment
- Assessment services, including an assessment interview, testing, counseling and employability planning
- Case management services
- Vocational guidance services
- Job search activities, including resume assistance, job search workshops, job finding clubs, specific labor market information and job search planning
- Bonding program
- Job development (JD) contacts
- Tax credit eligibility information
Referral to other services, including skills training, educational services, and supportive services (Supportive services include: referral to services designed to assist an individual to achieve physical, mental, social or economic well-being and reduce or eliminate barriers to employment. These include health and medical services, childcare, emergency financial services, relocation assistance, residential support, nutritional and legal services.)
Any other services requiring the expenditure of staff time, although there may be no specific reporting requirement. (Application taking and/or registration are not included as reportable services).
